Red Love Seat

A nine foot tall live Christmas tree and a red love seat sets the scene for one of our local consignment stores near our old house.
The love seat sold as I was snapping these images so I am glad I took them even though the sun was in my eyes.
 I consign a few items here (that Holidays book is one of mine) and enjoy the ladies who manage this store. I helped them a wee tiny bit to get ready for their ribbon cutting ceremony with the chamber of commerce.  Joe and I are thrilled that our small southern town now has several businesses on the square. I consign at three of them and have a ball doing it. Joe is also a big help in this endeavour and by now you know we are all about the thrill of the hunt.

In my next post I will show a silver, black, and gold vignette, from this store, that is terribly pretty. 
It made me turn around and get in my car and fetch my camera.

I am linking to The Tablescaper, for the very first time, for Seasonal Sundays.

may joy and peace surround you

  12. Hi Olive,

    This is a GORGEOUS love seat! It really makes a statement placed as it is in front of the Christmas tree. Wow! I noticed the quote by Jan Karon on your sidebar; I'm a big fan of her books. She used to live in North Carolina and I've done a post on "Finding Mitford" if you're interested in seeing the inspiration for her books.

    Happy Seasonal Sunday!

  15. That love seat is very beautiful. It looks so festive with the presents on it and the Christmas tree behind. Great photos.

    You gave me a great idea about crocheting angels. So I already started working on one. Thanks, you are an angel!

  16. Olive,
    Love the loveseat! I long for a fainting couch that looks like that! What a dream!
    I agree....about the thrill of the hunt! That's where most of the fun is, isn't it?
    Since we aren't hosting Thanksgiving, I'm ready to bring on Christmas!

  17. That red sofa was pretty for a holiday setting!!
    Have a wonderful week.

  18. Oh my goodness! What an amazing photo of the love seat and tree, just simply gorgeous!

    You know how I feel about supporting local busnesses. Wonderful news about your town!

  19. I'll say it...that love seat is sexy! I'm not surprised it sold so quickly...just be glad you weren't sitting on it. You might have gone out the door too!

  20. I love the idea of
    a town that small
    and knowing all
    of the shopkeepers!
    Bet you have fun
    with all of them....

    Happy Monday,

  23. That red love seat is divine and dramatic! How exciting that you add to the consignment shops. You certainly have a wonderful eye for treasures.
    I have been busy on a project and away from blogging for a couple of weeks so I'm having to play catch-up again...I love the old bucket on your buffet. It really is charming!

  24. That sofa is gorgeous. Such a pretty vibrant color for Christmas. You are lucky to have such fun stores in the area.


I adore your comments. They are like finding unexpected chocolates. olive
